6. Do a Mini-Meditation
Meditating can re-energize you by relaxing your mind and body, says Louise Gabrielle, a mind-body therapist. In the middle of the day, spend five minutes doing a conscious relaxation exercise: Lie down on the floor with your legs on a wall, your arms at your sides, and your head on a pillow (keep your buttocks close to the wall to avoid knee strain). Focus your mind’s attention on each body part, inviting your whole body to relax. Another option is lying on the ground with your calves and feet up on the seat of a chair. “When your legs are raised up, it’s very good for regenerating the body,” Gabrielle says. If you like, add in some gentle breathing, inhaling slowly and fully.
